WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is set to open a boxing match in Dubai next year.
According to Pacquiao, he is also interested in the offer offered by his former sparring partner Amir Khan.
The fighting senator has announced that he will speak to Khan's camp on the subject.
“I'm planning for next year; trying to make it for next year with a possible opponent. Especially Amir Khan wants to fight me. We will talk again. It would be a good fight, ”Pacquiao said.
It is noteworthy that the two should have taken a stand in the Middle East in 2017 due to funding issues.
This year Khan announced that a deal had been signed for the Pacquiao match in November, promptly blamed by the Pinoy icon camp.
Pacquiao is now in Dubai to host the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) event at the Hamdan Sports Complex.
